Shiva shrines in Bhaktapur drawing huge crowd, Doleswor temple open


Hindu devotees have been in queue at the Doleswor Mahadev temple in Sipadole, Bhaktapur since 3:00 am early today in order to pay obeisance to Lord Shiva on the occasion of Mahashivaratri festival.

On the day, all four doors to the temple are kept open in order to ease the flow of devotees.

Sufficient security arrangement has been made while volunteers have been mobilized to manage the crowd in the temple, said Kiran Thapa of the temple preservation committee.

Medical camps, drinking water supply and prasad distribution have also been managed accordingly, Thapa said.
A large number of saints from home and neighbouring India have also taken refuge in the temple premises that has added to the attraction to the temple.

The temple is open until midnight today.

Likewise, the Ashapuri Mahadesh in Sipadol, Ananta Lingeswor in Dadhikot, Gupteswar Mahadev and Somalingeswar Mahadev in Sirutar and the Jyotirlingeswar in Changu have also been drawing a large number of devotees since early morning today.

Hindus across the country are observing Mahashivaratri today, to mark the day Lord Shiva was believed to have been born.
